- Marian Rivera said she has let go of her foreign and branded bags and clothes
- The reason is because she developed a love for Filipino-made products
- The actress said it brings her satisfaction that she gets to showcase local products
Marian Rivera said she had a change of h
eart when it comes to branded and luxury brands.
The actress admitted that she has sold her expensive and foreign clothes and signature bags after she learned to love locally made items. She told Pep, “Wala na siya, ‘tapos binili ko ng mga katutubong damit.”
Marian said she realized she has lost her fondness for the luxury brands and found local items more worth it. “Nawala na, e. Siguro, nasabi ko na pag may pagkakataong may konting pambili, makabili ka ng medyo branded, pero sabi ko, what for? Para mas makabuluhan siguro ang pagsusuot ko ng damit kung… alam mo yun.”
Her realizations and advocacy to “go local” came after she endorsed a clothing brand focused on local artistry and design. Marian said, “Namulat kasi ang mata ko nung ine-endorse ko ‘yung Kultura. Nakita ko kung gaano kaganda at galing ng Pinoy sa paggawa ng iba’t ibang klaseng produkto.”
The actress said she finds satisfaction knowing that she gets to showcase products that are Filipino-made. “Ngayon, mas makabuluhan ang mga sinusuot ko. Kasi, gawang Pinoy siya,” Marian said.
The celebrity family recently had a fun vacation in Bohol. Marian shared that her daughter Zia really enjoyed the beach and couldn’t forget the Tarsier. She described their Bohol trip as “one for the books.”
Marian shared it was nice to explore the Philippines and let their children see the beauty of our country. “So, nakakatuwa. Sabi ko nga, sobrang ganda ng Pilipinas talaga!”
